I was at the April 10th (or 11th) 1970 FW show. That was my first live GD show.
Also saw the August 17th, 1970 show.
I hope somehow, someday more of those sweet shows turn up.
I know there was at least one audience taper (the guy that caught my ear with the 1st live GD tape I ever heard) at those shows, at least one of them.
He used a mono Craig or Panasonic deck, not super hi-tech but he was a regular audience taper of GD shows in 1970.
That one tape I did hear around March 1970 (of Saint Stephen >) was pretty good sounding actually.
Or else I never would have become interested in seeing the GD play live to begin with, not in April 1970 at any rate.
Garcia and Miles Davis hit it off back stage, and from what I've heard, Miles wasn't into making frends with or showing interest in the hippie rock bands.
But he had real respect for Jerry's playing, apparently as a result of hearing the GD perform at one or more of those FW shows.
